Cygnet Law has bolstered its workforce with the appointment of a former trainee as a permanent member of its legal team.
Cygnet Law has taken on Eleanor Barber, 25, as a solicitor following the completion of her two year-long solicitor training contract.
During her traineeship with the Redcar-based firm, the University of Sunderland and Northumbria graduate shadowed the work of a number of departments, seeing first-hand how specialist solicitors work within the Public Law, Private Family Law, and Mental Health Law spheres.
Eleanor said: “I’m over the moon to be beginning my legal career at Cygnet Law, especially as it’s a local business. It just goes to show that there are opportunities for young people in Tees Valley to get onto the career ladder. You don’t need to go to London or elsewhere to be successful.”
“I learned a tremendous amount during my two year traineeship here and I look forward to implementing those lessons as a fully-qualified solicitor.
“My work can be very challenging and demanding, but ultimately very rewarding.”
Peter Medd, Director at Cygnet Law, said: “We’re so pleased to be able to offer Eleanor a position with us here at Cygnet Law. She has proved herself to be a valuable and capable member of our team throughout her training contract, and we look forward to watching her flourish in her new role.”
